opportunities young people have in india and brazil and all these other countries that develop mentally 30 years ago were on a par with the countries they are in now. but they know in the arab world that they have slipped farther and farther behind. so the desire to join the rest of the world, be part of this global trend, i think is a very powerful tool. >> thank you. are there other questions or comments? there is one here and in one in the back. >> i am from east africa. i originally am from somebody. i want to share a grievance, from the last two months which gives me some kind of glimpse of hope in the region now we are talking about. what was the launch for the center and training for human rights in doha are. we had commissioner just launch it. and it was a ceremony which i attend. i found activist, and i hope, i say this, for the future. activists from doha are, from kuwait, there was none at all, women began, and some of them come in and speaking of freely because it largely focus on democracy. someone training. but highlighting, pointing out the difficulty and now we're talking about t

, one hears that the russians have been selling more advanced weapons to india, they have also sold some advanced weapons to malaysia and i understand indonesia. they have, obviously, a deep oblem with japan because of the northern territories, but nevertheless, if the rusans were to see their relationship with china as in some respects inhibited, aren't the assets avaible to the russians to, if you like, increase their livery somewhat? >> well, the russians have been trying to exercise those. they understand that, and so, for example, the arms relationship was always something that implicitly if the tensions became worse, the russians could do what the united states did after tiananmen which was cut that off. but now the chise can develop a lot of this stuff indigenously, so that leverages decline. the oil and gas we discussed, it's something that russia's been trying to use to, say, threaten or not threaten but really just bargain off china and japan and other countries to get them to pay higher prices, and the chinese for a while, you know, pretty much stood on their terms. now the ru
and demonstrations of around india against the united states. bald was the reason? was their something, that found some kind of underground connections or why -- he was in the u.s. dozens of times in the past and there was no problem at all. >> i actually think that the ambassador, our ambassador to india put out a statement on this case. beyond that i think i will defer to the department of homeland security. >> are you a thinking [inaudible] harassment, he feels since he was coming round the usa [inaudible] >> i am not equipped to comment on the case at this point. >> this has gone back to an older issue but it is again a new u.s. ambassador is starting in london and the mayor of london's office as well as members of the london assembly are calling for the u.s. to reevaluate its policy on congestion fees for the city and what the united states to pay 3.5 million pounds of fees' they say the united states owes. >> is there any change of policy coming or would you consider changing policy based on new ambassador? >> our policy does not change with the change of ambassador. >> what is the policy? >
. host: hobart, indiana. george on the india line. caller: good morning, gentlemen. glad you took my call. i just don't understand for one thing, mr. pappas. how come there is no flexibility between the parties when i have -- my wife and i have two insurance companies, employer insurance companies and we are consumed almost virtually 20% of our gross income, we are not talking about shared costs. or pharmaceutical or anything catastrophic that would happen to us. we are still going to be placed into bankruptcy. why isn't there some sort of consideration? why can't the two chambers of the house come to some sort of compromise to where we are put in a sunset or triggering mechanism to where we could try this new system of universal healthcare coverage? i don't want to use socialism because it is such a key word, a buzzword for a lot of medicaid and medicare people. they think that they are not part of the socialist medicine group. guest: what george just shared with us, i think, is very important and it reminds me of my parents' own situation. my parents live in massachusetts where they ha
arm, pakistan at risk, the potential for confrontation beeen two nuclear armed forces in india and kistan that could result, when you look at all the possibilities o ting this go, and i thi that's got to be clearly made to americans, t not only americans i mean i think no has been woefully uerrepresented in this thing. when we go to, who reay has put boo on the ground and engaged, is the brits, it'she dutch, it's the canadians. ere are the others, you ow, in the 28 nati. >> so that's aery important point abt presidential learship. so how do you -- w do you get them t come around? >> well, i think tha we have to have tse sorts of -i think this is a defining momenfor nato. they shouldn get a pass on this. wasn't just waington and new york that re attacked. it was madrid and it was lond and almost several other capits. and of course the charter ys an attack on one ian attack on all. that is what was, you know, oked in terms of the nato commment. and i don' think we shld be giving passes at, look, u can sort of provi some economic support and you get a pass on putting boots on the
in india, and an awful lot of the doctors doing it were educated here. >> but does the president have to look beyond the rich for taxes? >> well, yeah. there's just -- the middle class bears the real burden here. that's why the middle class is getting hurt. and what you keep hearing, i take the subway in the morning, and people, everybody talks about what their complaints are. it's new york. and paying taxes is something nobody likes. now, they like the services that taxes pay for, but you have to have the burden -- everybody's going to have to sacrifice, everody's going to have to reach in their pocket if we're going to have a city and country of the future. >> does he have to reconsider that promise not to raise taxes on the middle class? >> i think we'll see down the road. in the end, the president has to deal with the reality and some of the things are beyond his control. he makes commitments, and he tries to live up to them, and i think the courage of being able to say, look, the world is different than what i anticipated or what it was before and i'm going to have to face that,
